A sweetly subtle romantic incest story that only Esmeralda could write.
The story is like a piquant hors d'oeuvre. Finishing it, the reader is left yearning for more, and, as it is a 'Greene Short' a little more depravity, but it is still perfect in and of itself.
Like all of Esmeralda's stories, a total pleasure to read.
An astonishing book and an amazing bargain...
Written with an obvious knowledge of the people and places he is describing, the author never, ever forgets he is writing a novel to arouse the reader and hell's bells does he deliver. Each sex scene is more powerful than the last and I just hope this book is only the first of many by Mr Riggs...
hrhsophia is absolutely right: goodness knows why Alison Shaw chooses to give her work away but I, for one, am not complaining.
She writes intelligent, exciting erotica that is a joy to read and deliciously hot. I have snapped up Jenna's first adventure to read after 'Grand Tour' and look forward eagerly to reading whatever Ms Shaw publishes next... Definitely five stars!!

Is this a joke? A 7310 word elaborate satire masquerading as an erotic story? It is indescribably bad, waste-of-time bad - even if it *is* free... Minus stars, if that's even possible.
I read the first few pages of this title in the sample and then bought every book available on Cindy Atherton's page, wondering as I did so if there was any chance she'd consider having my babies I liked her writing *that* much...(unfortunately not a very likely prospect given her fondness for writing about anal sex).
Well-written with convincing characters engaging in intensely erotic acts - god, what's not to love about her stories? My only worry is the latest was written in October of last year so please publish soon, Cindy, your newest, most ardent fan is desperate for more!!!
I like to support Smashwords authors by buying their work. I want them to succeed, to go on writing erotica for their enjoyment and my pleasure. But it has to be a two-way street - the story has to be worth the money and in this case it most assuredly was not.
Badly written, not remotely realistic, the story - such as it was - didn't even live up to the title, never mind arouse me. It was a doodle based on a supposedly sexy idea that was never developed and on which I wasted $2.99. Not a lot, one might think, but Sonia Robinson lost a lot more than I did: she lost my respect.
You know how there are stories you simply *know* will always get you off? Stories that arouse you, entertain you, make you smile with delighted pleasure at the same time as they send you through the roof with intense arousal? This is one of those stories for me.
It's kinky, subtle, amusing, wonderfully written and *very* hot. I love it more every time I read it.
I wish more Smashwords authors would follow Mr Scott Taylor's simple model. He made one of his books free, I liked it a lot and went to his page to see what else he'd written. A second of his books was also free so I bought the remaining three books in the series: effectively I get five for the price of three. He wins/I win.
BTW, his style is excellent - graphic and highly erotic.
Yep, seconded. If dog, horse and f/f sex are your thing, Mr. (really? told from a very convincing woman's POV) Knight delivers in spades. BTW - I noticed my favorite author Esmeralda Greene was involved too - and that's a recommendation in itself.
Hello Osric134 - I wondered where you'd gone to and I'm delighted to have discovered you again...
Delighted also to see you've lost none of your delight in writing about anal sex, incest and well-endowed black men. I just bought 15 of your books in one go, including this one, so be assured there's a delighted fan waiting to read everything you write.
Yes, it is a good book: the characters are convincingly written, the situations often tense and exciting. The reader really feels for Cleo and the misery she experiences at the start after she is trapped, as much as enjoying the way her relationship with Connor slowly blossoms.
The only problem, if one can call it that, is Ms Chase seems to lose interest in the erotic element of the romance about half way through. I loved Connor's dominating side meeting Cleo's submissive side but it suddenly stops after a particularly erotic scene: 'Yes. Lots of people like it much more than straight sex.' It is a shame as the sex scenes are really well written.
Goodness knows why I read the second book in the series before the first but I did and greatly enjoyed it. I love it when an author subverts a genre and Ms McBay does so splendidly, convincingly adding a fiery erotic heat to the usually rather prim Regency novella. Perhaps I might have longed for a touch stronger naughtiness (Clarissa made love to in two out of three ways was delightful but...) although that is surely a wish too far when so much was already present in Ms McBay's delightful debut. Recommended wholeheartedly.
Have you ever read a story so perfectly written, so delightfully erotic you turn your laptop on specifically so you can log into Smashwords and write a review? I have, and this is it.
I was (slightly) qualified about Ms McBay's second novel which I now regret: I have enormous respect for the way she creates convincing characters you, the reader, quickly come to care about. Her pacing, so very important in an erotic story, is unerring, her descriptive writing highly arousing, the denouement very cleverly worked out and quite sweetly wonderful. I enjoyed reading every word and look forward eagerly to her next story or, preferably, stories.
As her Regency characters would say, 'Bravo!'
A new story by Keith is always an event, his last, 'Creamed Buns' was intensely erotic and very enjoyable. But this story was off-centre somehow, more concerned with the emotional problems the two women faced than their roles as willing sex partners to well-hung black men. Having to wait for the erotic action to start more than half way through the story was surprising and just a little disappointing...
A review for both parts, 1 and 2:
Great fun, sexy and clever - I thoroughly enjoyed both stories, especially Ms Swallows' convincing - and well-researched - recreation of Victorian London. Might perhaps have shocked the good Sir Arthur but definitely not the modern reader in search of a nicely written erotic Holmes pastiche...
But, Ms Swallows, a plea? Drop the 'Fifty Shades' tag - your stories are worth better than the association.
Ms Rossi, you asked for reader's comments so:
Take care when you change point-of-view quickly: it can be confusing for the reader to be in Cheryl's mind and then, in the next paragraph, Danny's.
The sex scenes were wonderful: explicit, erotic, just the right amount of awareness of what turns the reader on by who is doing what to whom. The sexual detail (e.g. when Cheryl checks herself out in the mirror) was really arousing.
Maybe it's just me but I don't want reality in an erotic story so I hate when characters discuss condoms/say 'I'm clean' so they can ride bareback. I want - need - bareback because cum/spurting climaxes are deeply erotic: condoms aren't. Entirely your choice but it's obvious you like to write down-and-dirty which safe sex isn't...
Do I want lots of romantic entanglements, soul-searching, the realisation that love will win through? I would happily cut all that by 50% because what works for you works for me: a sexy couple who can't keep their hands off each other getting it on as often as possible. Tears dripping down a face or another bodily fluid - well, which would you choose..?
Hope these comments are constructive/helpful - and very much looking forward to your next story.
On her blog Esmeralda says this is one of her favourite stories - and it's not hard to see why. Funny, erotic, with a deliciously depraved MILF who lusts after the men in her life, it's a wonderful Greene short to treasure. Definitely five stars...
There are two (sort of) Georgia Foxs. Both write very erotic romances set (typically) in 11th century England, shortly after the Norman invasion in 1066. I love both Georgias but the one writing this series for Twisted Erotica is having so much fun it's infectious. Cleverly plotted, convincing and likeable characters, lashings of delicious sex - what's not to love? As long as she keeps writing them I, and I hope many others, will buy and enjoy her wonderful books.
Great, if very kinky fun, just like the previous book in the 'Lucky' series and 'Caught on Camera'. If M/M with the dog getting in the act is your thing, don't hesitate.
But, Naughti Gurl, would you consider a plea for tighter editing and lose the the damn condoms? Bareback is erotic, condoms definitely not so much...
One of the very best of Keith's stories. Packed to the gunnels with gorgeous white women getting their asses fucked repeatedly by the hero's huge black cock, it is the perfect definition of intense interracial anal erotica. I loved it, every wonderful word.
What amazes me is how Esmeralda manages effortlessly to make a subject a reader might not usually find arousing - in this case pregnancy - and make it deliciously erotic.
Miriam's acceptance of her children's incestuous relationship makes the story believable, witty and surprisingly subtle - not to mention smoking hot.
Esmeralda is simply peerless in the imaginative quality of her erotic stories.
Five stars for two reasons.
First, because the story is about incest. Not the (extremely) irritating 'pseudo-incest' which is so common on Smashwords with everyone 'step-this' and 'step-that', but sexual attraction between a father and his daughter with his wife/her mother fully aware of what's happening and extremely aroused by her daughter's determination to seduce her father. Inotherwords, truly consensual.
Second, because the situations are believable and slow-building. The author takes his time to ensure the story and dialogue are realistic - a precious commodities in this genre.
I really am looking forward to reading Part 2 (and more!).
Extremely erotic and extremely enjoyable. On the basis of 'Blow the Man Down' I bought all of Anonsy's books to date and look forward to buying more as soon as they appear. Gay, straight - Anonsy writes my kind of erotica.
I'm sorry readers have been remiss in giving Ms Stone's books good reviews: let's see if I can make up for that. This is really well-written, believable erotica which isn't as common as I'd like. I had to buy Part 2 of this series because I enjoyed Part 1 so much and, believe me, I wasn't disappointed. I look forward eagerly to reading/buying more stories about Johnny Deep, or any other characters Ms Stone's talented pen conjures up for our pleasure.
Definitely five stars for the quality/heat of the writing and the delicious situations. But ... I so wish Sandy hadn't written the guys wear condoms. As Ali the sexy heroine says, 'There's nothing I love more than getting my ass filled with cum' but she didn't!
An utterly wonderful, carefully plotted, thoroughly arousing Greene Short that proves, once again, Esmeralda's mastery of the erotic short story. Newbie writers and old hands alike can learn so much from her - this is how it's done to be done *really* well!!!
Plus points: Ms Hooker's story was about real incest - which is erotic - not 'pseudo-incest' which is ridiculous, especially when it's labelled 'taboo'... It was well -written and, while a bit far-fetched, was arousing. The only minus (hardly fair considering the price) is it was too short. The father and daughter fucked, end of, which was a shame when Angelica was portrayed as sexy and adventurous. A little father/daughter anal would've been *really* nice... So, maybe a sequel?
Not in the accepted sense erotica (no point in looking for the conventional tags with regard to content) but beautifully written, carefully plotted stories, each with a premise, exposition and denouement. As she says, if it is erotica and romance for the thinking person that attracts you, Ms Milton's skilful use of language will fit the bill perfectly.
Sadly, truly terrible. No story, just fucking. And the punctuation is a joke: sentences should start with a capital letter, sentences should end with a full stop, there should be a comma before closing speech marks as in "Please fuck me," Karen said and not Said Karen. Please, Katie, read the stories of Esmeralda Greene to see how to write erotica.
Not a 'typical' Esmeralda story - if there is such a thing. The sex, as always, is highly erotic and the writing simply perfect, but there's an unusual undertone of wistfulness and regret that makes this storyline more thoughtful and I found myself thinking about Ursula long after I'd finished reading. I'd love to read more stories about her...please?
Certainly agree with everything Randy Rob says.
You know when you're reading really exciting erotica and you think, 'That scene was amazing - now if only the author takes it one step further on...'? Well, Mr Scott does: he makes you anticipate the best and then delivers. So much so that when I'd bought this book I bought all his others on the strength of it. Does that count as a strong recommendation...?
I listened to Chopin's 'Preludes' while I read Ms Simon's story. Appropriate because there is the same blend of enchantment and melancholy in the composer's music and 'Story of L'. Like Chopin's miniatures, Ms Simon's book is exquisitely written, not a word superfluous, capturing complex emotions in convincing characters. Did I wish for a different ending? A little, as a reward for the main character's sweet submissiveness. Ah well, my mistake for being a foolish romantic...
An author writes a book, publishes it on Smashwords and hopes people will buy it, read it and say nice things to encourage other people to buy and read it. The problem comes when there's a big gap between someone buying it and saying, "Wow, f*uck, this is truly an *amazing* book - I must give it five stars!" which is a long-winded way of saying I wish I'd reviewed it sooner, and, yes, it *is* an amazing book. Faith is so loveable, so deliciously hot, so wonderfully naive and yet so completely into the pleasures of big black cock in every orifice I wanted it to last forever and absolutely loved every word. *Definitely* five stars!
So good I kept glancing at the page numbers as I read because I didn't want it to end... Deliciously decadent and *extremely* erotic, I bought Parts 2 and 3 the moment they appeared. Definitely five stars.
Mr Scott's novels keep getting better and better. As usual, the build-up to father and daughter sleeping together is taken slowly and made wholly convincing; the orgy scene is particularly well written because it's extremely erotic but we never lose sight of the principal couple whose story this is; and there's less of the concern about sexual hygiene which jars the reader's immersion in the story. Altogether five stars and I, for one, would really like to read more of his stories connecting together as this one skilfully does.
Tristan Sparrow and I share two passions: for stories where the main characters are related, and petite women with (very) large breasts. So I found 'The Storm' as hugely enjoyable as 'The Dance' and am slowly working my way through buying and reading all his other wonderful novellas. More, please, Mr Sparrow!!
No idea why Mr Jones has decided to be so generous and give away 90% of his oeuvre but when an erotic short story is as good as this - and ballsachingly, uproariously *funny* - then I, for one, am not complaining. A great pleasure to read and my thanks to a generous writer for his gifts.
Not only highly erotic but *very* well written. What I particularly liked was the author's attention to detail: the convincing French setting, the way the two lovers assessed each location for the best place to deploy chains for their BDSM lovemaking - M.J. Carey took real care to ensure everything in the story fitted together perfectly. Sadly, not as common as you might think! Definitely five stars.
Sometimes you strike it lucky with Smashwords free titles: well, sort-of-lucky if it means you then go on to spend quite a few bucks buying the author's other books...!
Lisa writes beautifully. No grammatical horrors, no spelling errors just hot-as-hell erotica that a man can enjoy every bit (more? two for the price of one?) as much as a woman. And I *really* love a lady author who includes anal sex...
So, definitely five stars - and more 'Lesbian Angel' please.
The target demographic for anal-themed bestiality stories has to be pretty small but - sadly - I'm in it and - delightedly - this is one hot as hell, truly story that fits the bill absolutely perfectly...
Great, amazing, highly enjoyable ... more, please?
We nearly lost Janice! That would have been as bad as losing Tits - my favorite character for obvious reasons... The 'Perverse Investigations' series is just wonderful - very funny, erotic and highly enjoyable. Ms Hall, you know what I'm going to say: more please!!!
Hello out there? Am I the only reader on Smashwords aware of how amazing Ms Hall's writing is...?
1) This novella is incredible. Imaginative, erotic and highly enjoyable I loved every word and wanted it to be twice, three times the length because I simply didn't want it to end. 2) Ms Hall has a lovely way of creating, in just a few words, characters who have warmth, beauty, sexiness and passion. As she says, it's happy sex and lord knows we could all do with more of that. And 3) the ending leaves potential for a sequel/s. So...do I have to beg...?
I suppose Mr Winchester has a point: 'Allerleirauh' was a little shorter than I'd hoped but then it was also free which has to be taken into account.
The thing I love about Ms Hall stories is they make me laugh: for example the really funny scenes whenever anyone mentions the word 'witch'. Worth revisiting for a Part 2, perhaps...?
